Chris Billam-Smith Talks Replacement Fight on March 20th

Last updated

Chris Billam-Smith will be taking on Vasil Ducar at The SSE Arena, Wembley on Saturday March 20. The event will be live on Sky Sports in the UK and on DAZN in the U.S. and more than 200 countries and territories.

The reigning Commonwealth Cruiserweight Champion was originally slated to battle English Champion Deion Jumah for the vacant British Title. However Billam-Smith will now take on the Czech Republic’s Ducar for the vacant WBA Continental Title. 

“We’re in this sport to fight so when fights fall out close to the date it’s frustrating but I’m just looking forward to getting back in there and putting on a show,” said Billam-Smith. “I’m learning all the time and that’s the way I’m looking at it, I’m far from the finished article and I’m using every day in camp to make sure I’m always improving.”

“Vasil Ducar was out sparring Mairis Briedis with me about a year ago and he’s very tough” Chris Billam-Smith continued. “He’s been in with some very good fighters who couldn’t get him out of there so I will be looking to go one better and end the fight inside the ten rounds. Shane also tells me how tough he is but my response to that is, ’˜let’s see!’. He’s never been stopped and can clearly punch with 8 of his 9 wins coming by knockout. This is a good challenge for me at this stage of my career.”

Chris Billam-Smith finished by saying that he hopes to have a major event in Bournemouth once the COVID-19 restrictions are lifted. “I would love to headline a show in Bournemouth later this year when crowds have returned. The Tommy McCarthy fight for the European Title really excites me or the rematch with Richard Riakporhe, but right now it’s all focus on Ducar, March 20.”
